And I mean serious catch-up. But, Thanksgiving was so much fun that I had to share my snaps. We went down to visit our friends in LA, you know, the ones who came to visit us last year for Thanksgiving. It’s a bit of a tradition and honestly, we have a little something up our sleeves for next year to keep the tradition alive even though we’re no longer on the West Coast. More on that later though.
Keeping with tradition we made a whole Turkey Day feast. The amazing thing about this year was that our friends planned the whole menu. While I usually revel in that part of the holiday this year things felt crazy and it was such a luxury to get to just show up and cook. And that’s exactly what we did. We had a great day filled with cooking our Thanksgiving favorites. Our recipe contributions were the chocolate cream pie and the mashed potatoes. Both of which came from Bon Appetit last year. And both of which I highly recommend. They’re always crowd pleasers! If you do make the pie I recommend cutting down the amount of sweetened condensed milk to ½ a cup, it will give you a chocolatier pie.
Anyway, that was a bit of a tangent. Back to Thanksgiving. It was a warm and fuzzy and magical and delicious day. Basically everything you want out of Thanksgiving. And then, on Friday we had such a fun day driving all over the city checking out vintage furniture stores looking for for an Eames rocker. We went to about five different stores that were in all corners of LA. It was a fun way to explore the city and we were lucky enough that our friends wanted to come with us! Not to mention, we found the chair we were looking for. And at the very last store nonetheless. The whole trip was perfect, take a look!
